    I joined the challenge to reinfoce to myself, and my family, the importance on building a stronger conscience and be more mindful on the decisions we take every day for the Benefit of our own health and our planet. Havong goals helped to increase the awareness and motivate for healthier habits at home. I didn't check-in every single day but it definitely pushed me to make better decisions and learn about topics that I was not fully educated on.

    Creating good and healthy habits for me and my family! Was able to be more mindful of not what i eat but also the waste that is produced, trying to pay more attention to the portions i offer to my daughter too.

    Hi... i'm trying to get traction on this! My husband and I have already re-started our composting actions, to reduce food waste and we are trying to make it a daily habit. While also recycling everything we can from what we consume. Small actions can truly make a huge difference.
